13 Awesome Things To Do This Week in Dallas, August 9 to 13

You've bravely battled hot seat belts and steering wheels. Dutifully punched that time clock. Now it's time to break away from the man and get a little satisfaction. You're in luck! Hit up the pop-up happy hour after work on Thursday, then roll over to the F.O.E. for a killer moonlight pool party.

But that ain't all. This weekend's loaded with great stuff: there's a skateboarding/art/music bash, a Quentin Tarantino-themed burlesque show, a pretty major art opening on Saturday and yeah, WWE wrastlin' on Monday. Put a plan together with your party gang and share this list, also click the event titles for more information. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one getting thrown into the folding table.)

Thursday 8.9 Retro Pool Party Fundraiser for girlShow -- If you haven't experienced the F.O.E. on a weekday evening, this party is the perfect excuse. It's a fundraiser for girlShow, that big annual exhibition featuring all female artists and musicians. Putting it on takes a little seed money, so you get to go to an awesome party. It's got everything: a photo booth, body painted models all dressed up in retro and vintage outfits, a Dj, and sketch artists. Your ten buck donation even gets you three free Deep Eddy Vodka drink tickets. Perfect.
